According to Byron Tesapsides, "Allied Submarine Operations in Greece during World War II 1941-1944", the 300/400 ft long floating dock was being taken from Volos to Salonika in tow of 3 tugs with 6 AS escorts. It was sunk on the second attempt with 2 torpedo hits.
In Dorgeist-Tesapsides-Stenzel's "Chronik der Kuestenschutzflottille Nordgriechenland 1941-1944" the escort is said to have included artillery lighter MAL 14, unarmed R 139 and 4 Sicherungsboote motor-schooners of the Flotilla, GM (Griechenland, Mazedonien) 64, 65, 69 and 74 (64 ex 10M15/M15/Viktoria, 65 ex 10M16/M16/M1Reserve/HS1/Evangelistria, 69 ex 10M20/ ... and 74 ex GM 73/H3/AD210 Chanterève (French motor-yacht).
